In Psychedelia and Other Colours, acclaimed author Rob Chapman explores in crystalline detail the history, precedents and cultural impact of LSD, from the earliest experiments in painting with light and immersive environments to the thriving avant-garde scene that existed in San Francisco even before the Grateful Dead and the Fillmore Auditorium. In the U.K., he documents an entirely different history, and one that has never been told before. It has its roots in fairy tales and fairgrounds, the music hall and the dead of Flanders fields, in the Festival of Britain and that peculiarly British strand of surrealism that culminated in the Magical Mystery Tour.
Sitars and Sergeant Pepper, surfadelica and the Soft Machine, light shows and love-ins — the mind-expanding effects of acid were to redefine popular culture as we know it. Psychedelia and Other Colours documents these utopian reverberations — and the dark side of their moon — in a perfect portrait.

Rob Chapman is the author of perhaps the most acclaimed biography of Syd Barrett: An Irregular Head. He has written three other books and was a member of the Bristol based group, The Glaxo Babies.Review:
'A fantastic, exhaustive history of the genre: comphrehensive but gripping, packed with eye-opening period detail and with a brilliant analysis of everything from Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to the oeuvre of the Crocheted Doughnut Ring' Alexis Petridis The Guardian
'An exhaustive, idiosyncratic and very entertaining reappraisal of an often lazily documented period' Jim Irvin Mojo 4*
"As an account of psychedelia's glorious highs and preposterous charms, Chapman's exhaustive exploration of this Arcadian age with take its rightful place as the standard text" Rob Young The New Statesman
'...it's not so much that Rob Chapman [...] brings new insights to the table though it does that too: it's more that it constitutes a whole other table in its own right' Oregano Rathbone Record Collector 4*
Undeniably admirable and enjoyable Allan Jones Uncut 7/10
